July 7, 2011, Hardwick, Vermont-The Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE) and the Vermont Food Venture Center (VFVC) is sponsoring a ServSafe Class Thursday, July 28th from 8am -5pm at its new facility at 141 Junction Road, Hardwick, VT 05843. This class provides valuable skills and information for people who work with food – chefs, wait staff, and is required of all clients of the Vermont Food Venture Center.

Annie Rowell was a participant in a recent ServSafe class at the VFVC.  “After taking ServSafe, I felt much more prepared to be a responsible user of a shared-kitchen space.  There are so many hazards associated with food preparation and processing that I was not aware of, most of which are easily avoided when properly informed.”, says Ms. Rowell. “It is important to realize that all VFVC clients must keep the space clean, as the integrity of any product created at the VFVC relies on good reputation of clean production.”

Brian Norder, the instructor for the course is a food business consultant from Morrisville, Vermont. Former Project Director of the Vermont Food Venture Center from 1197 to 2010, Mr. Norder frequently speaks and consults on topics of food business development, marketing, food science and food safety and is a certified instructor of ServSafe and HACCP.

The registration fee of $135 includes the textbook and exam and light refreshments. Registration and pre-payment are required. Please see the for more information or to download a registration form. Please contact Heidi Krantz at 802-472-5362 or to register or for more information.

    The price is not bad as it also includes textbooks. A similar class would cost about 300-500.
